Psalm 28 (Listen)

Of David.


28:1   To you, O LORD, I call;    my rock, be not deaf to me,  lest, if you be silent to me,    I become like those who go down to the pit.  Hear the voice of my pleas for mercy,    when I cry to you for help,  when I lift up my hands    toward your most holy sanctuary.

  Do not drag me off with the wicked,    with the workers of evil,  who speak peace with their neighbors    while evil is in their hearts.  Give to them according to their work    and according to the evil of their deeds;  give to them according to the work of their hands;    render them their due reward.  Because they do not regard the works of the LORD    or the work of his hands,  he will tear them down and build them up no more.

  Blessed be the LORD!    For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.  The LORD is my strength and my shield;    in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;  my heart exults,    and with my song I give thanks to him.

  The LORD is the strength of his people;    he is the saving refuge of his anointed.  Oh, save your people and bless your heritage!    Be their shepherd and carry them forever.

Discipleship Training
Gospel Transformation by World Harvest Mission
I heard a lot about Gospel Transformation through the grapevine but I finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago. It’s a 36 week inductive study focusing in on the gospel and our ongoing need for it no matter how long you’ve been a Christian. A few brothers of mine are going to start up soon. After flipping through the contents, it’s probably one of the best discipleship resources out there.
 
Sonship by World Harvest Mission
I haven’t really gotten a chance to go through this one yet, but it looks very promising. In addition, they have a one week Sonship Retreat as well as phone mentoring as well.
 
Gospel Centered Living
This is a shorter adaptation of Gospel Transformation. We went through this a few years ago and was very helpful in shaping our understanding of the gospel and our mission.
 
Matthias Media
I went to a conference by 9Marks and was introduced to ministry from Australia called Matthias Media. I was open to a whole new world! Well, not really. Back in my Boston days, there was a Korean couple from Australia who trained us in leading growth groups. Now I know they were trained by Matthias Media materials back in their university days. Anyway, their gospel resources are solid and they are constantly pumping out new tools and resources.

Gospel Presentations
John 3:16
Here’s Pastor Ken’s attempt to summarize the gospel using John 3:16
Two Ways to Live
A concise summary of the gospel that tells the whole story of God’s redemptive plan from beginning to end. There are tracts for adults and children and its translated in many languages including Chinese.
 
The Big Story
James Choung is coming out with a new book, True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In. Instead of going through a tract, which would roll the eyes of many skeptics, James whips out a piece of scrap paper and starts drawing. He starts with human longings and how it points to creation and from there, tells the story of God’s rescue mission. I like the holistic element and how the gospel not only saves and transforms individuals, but also how the gospel transforms society and the world we live in.
 
How Can I Know God?
This isn’t a gospel tract or a tool, but a great article by Tim Keller called, How Can I Know God?
